Auckland fuel tax debate heads to Council

From Morning Report, 8:24 am on 30 April 2018

The debate over Auckland's regional fuel tax changes gear on Monday as councillors debate the list of projects to be funded by the extra 11.5c/l charge. It's an important shift in the debate, moving from whether the idea is a good one, to whether it'll be spent in a way that benefits the whole region, and already there's criticism. Aucklanders will get just a fortnight from Tuesday to air their views on how the politicians want to spend the new money.
